Why?
-----------------
A derivation gives a more complete understanding of a word by revealing the story of how a word has changed from its original form to become what it means today.

The word "muscle", for example, has a derivation: Flex your upper arm and look at your bicep. What does it look like? Some Roman did this and gave birth to the word we now know as "muscle", which meant "little mouse" in Latin, the language of the Ancient Romans.

Knowing the history of words the words not only gives you deeper understanding of what you are reading, it also unlocks the power to use words in their fullest sense so that you can clearly communicate your ideas to others.
